ABC Wednesday: N is for the New Mayfair Hotel
We've just come back from a week at the New Mayfair Hotel on New South Promenade in Blackpool. It is a hotel that caters specifically for anyone with disabilities.
The food was good and the company friendly.
This was the view from our bedroom. A small lawn area frequented by dog walkers seperates the hotel from the busy road and tramlines below the promenade above the seawall.
The hotel's proximity to a tram stop was it's trump card. The new fleet of trams at Blackpool are fully wheelchair accessible and the carriages have spaces into which even electric wheelchair users can navigate. This photograph was taken at the Central Pier stop and shows Madame Tussaud's waxworks in the background.
We went to Fleetwood, Cleveleys and Central Blackpool on the tram and to Windermere and Lancaster using the hotel bus which also transported us from home to the hotel and back. I took some 300 photographs.
This was the view Monday morning before we came home. We've booked to go back again in June.
For ABC Wednesday.
